    I've not tried to box mine back up, but IIRC, he was packaged with his forearms collapsed, and also his wings were closed up around his front. Don't know if that helps or not.

    Maybe the forearms is my issue. Then again I can't get Grassor back in properly either but his issue is the foam block under his dino head. On Graviter I have the wings closed and his feet slide in properly then somewhere around the waist and up things get off. I know mine didn't have the dino head tabbed in and after hearing of some breakage of the tab I didn't try to retab it. My wife's asleep now though and I'd have to pass through, trip over our dogs, curse profusely at the dogs for tripping me, probably wake our 4yo who fell asleep in bed with her while watching Paw Patrol and in turn that'd wake her up. Think I'll take a stab at it tomorrow. Thanks for the tip.

    For me, I can’t get the legs back in. The foam wants the to squeeze them together to fit, but there isn’t enough room. Not to mention they wouldn’t fit the shape of the plastic cover.

    I’ll likely just shave the styrofoam and call it a day.

    Why you guys wanna box him back up, anyway? Once I was satisfied that I didn't have any issues I bagged their extra accessories and instructions up and tossed the boxes. No way I'm selling them; Graviter isn't just my toy of the year (so far) I like him better than anything I got from last year (a year that included Op Ex, Power Baser, Sovereign, Downbeat, and Meteor, I might add).

    I have a large collection. Not just Transformers but GI Joe, Star Wars, Masters of the Universe etc. Hundreds. maybe thouands at this point, of figures, vehicles, playsets. Then my comics, cards...table top games, video games. We currently live in a 400ish sqft house with two kids. I'm hoping to return to school this year and have a three year plan that puts us in a house more suited to our family that'll have my room where everything can come out but until then it stays in it's box in categorized tubs in a climate controlled on site storage.

    Fucking beautiful. Immediately erased displeasure at Gigapower for snubbing me from the list of reviewers. I would gladly pay for such a beautiful toy. And I did. Bring on Gautender!

    Displeasure at being snubbed? Rest of us mere mortals paid for it too if that's any consolation. :cool:

    So from who are you all buying? Was there any mention if robotkingdom would sell Graviter? It's not even listed on the site.....

    I just don’t have place to display my toys other than a small shelf in my garage above my workbench which is for my G.I. Joes. For Transformers I take one or two out at a time to mess with and display on my boys shelf in his room, but when they are away I prefer to keep them in their original packaging.

    I’d certainly prefer a shelf big enough to display my glorious GP Dino’s.

    Can you get creative and build something onto your wall in your shop to display these glorious things?

    Eventually I’m going to redo the garage and build something. That’ll come after finishing one more bathroom and some molding.

    Until then, I...stilll...can’t....get ...Graviter...into...this....styrofoam! What the hell is it made out of, concrete? It’s a bigger mystery than what happened to Amelia Earhart.

    I don’t blame them, not difficult to get a replacement part anyway. Meanwhile no one can tell he’s four fingered! :lol  Guess you’ll contact them in March?

    Graviter is so awesome that if I couldn't make shelf space for him I'd just put him in my bed and snuggle him at night when I sleep.

    I'd spend all night worrying about whether or not my wife is putting her cold ass feet on him as well. Damn women!
